Interest of the condemned anarchists he
will find a reception awaiting him for
which he Is not prepared
Monsionou CiiKr whose coming to

Mn SriES one of the Chicago anarch
ists thinks he ought not to be hung He
Indulges mere difference of opinion tor
about 0000 people think he onght to be

Men who cannot appreciate what Ameri
can liberty does for mankind ought to be
hung or driven out of the country
Mr Gkoroe shows his availability as a
candidate by his readiness to make
promUes near Mm If elected as I
believe I will be Mr George said I
will do my ntmost to discharge my duties
faithfully and well and to give the peoplo
of this city a clean government I will
enforce the laws against friends as fully
as foes I will be mayor of tho whole
city and preserve order ot all risks
Ikriiaps there is no more convincing
evidence of the kind of reading de
manded of the newspaper than tbo fact
that New York journals find it pays to
devote columns to tho disgusting ralnu
tia of an intimacy existing between a
dissolute English lord and an equally de
praved actress It Is time that such
things ceased and actresses wore not
freely advertised by a recital of their
vices
It was a very creditable piece of work
for the McLennan county Farmers alll
anco the other day the contribution ot
twelve carloads ot grain nnd 150 for
the relief of tho Western Texas drought
sufferers And tho spirit of tho contri
bution was all themoro commendable In
that tho alliance didnt stipulate tho re
lief should go exclusively to tho needy

Her namo was sought for advertising

A national banker In an intcrvlow
with a Dallas reporter sold I am
favor of having tho government tako away
our circulation while lca > lng tho bank
under government supervision In
ronowlng our circulation wo havo to pay
128 for porcont bonds maturing In 1007
Thus wo pay 6128000 for 8100000 bonds
on whlcn tho government allows 800000
Issue of which 5 por cent or 1100 must
bo deposited at Washington for the re
demption of our mutilated currency and
on which we pay 1 por cent tax or 8000
to tho government Deducting tho i

which from 8128000 thero Is 813400 tied
up tho interest on which at 12 por cont
amounts to 85208 while tho Interest
coming to us from tho bonds Is only
84000 ThuB you see Instead of dorlv
Ing a profit from our circulation wo
lose by It 8120S not to mention tho ex
prcsssgo on currency that wo aro forced
to piy Soon after tho war when gov
ernment bonds wore at a discount thero
was money lu tho system but thero Is
not now On bolug asked by tho re
porter why ho didnt give up his national
bank and go Into private banking thu
banker said I would do It tomorrow
If I could 8curo tho sarao confidence
but depositors and others are attracted to
the national banks becauso government
supervision creates confidence in them
As further evidence of what I have said
we are only going to take out 850000
the minimum when wo could tako out
8200000 tho maximum that 1s allowed

Thk Chicago papers are still warring
vigorously on tho eastbound cattle
freight rates from the Lake city In a
recent Issue the Dally Lire Slock Review
says By the rearrasgtatenlot freight
rates which went into effect March 1 the
cost of shipping a car of live cattle from
Chicago to New York was increased 820
while 848 per car was added to tie cost
of sending thither n carload ot dressed
beef For this advance the Inordinate
greed of the railroads is the only excuse
matcan be rendered The advance was
made at a time when the profits to the
pool lines ot transporting live stock from
Chicago to New York wero greater than
ever before since railway traffic began
and at a time when the producer was re
ceiving les for his cattle than almost
ever before in the history of tho trade
By that advance the value of every
bullock In the West was depreciated
to the extent of 81 to 8125
per head It malet a difference
in the market value of the cat
tit rectiied at Chicago of 82000000 an
nually This vast sum Is filched
from the pockets of producers
without so much as the shadow
of an excuse There should be a remedy
for this species of thievery And Is It not
about time the livestock associations and
the cattlemen of the country generally
pooled their Issues and made common
cause against tho common enemy Tho
exactions ot the anthracite coal monopol
ists arc not more outrageous than are the
demands of the Kastern pool railway
lines The governor ot Pennsylvania has
instructed bis attorneygeneral to proceed
against the former and test In tho courts
their right to rob the public If tho pro
posed remedy proves efficacious in the
case of tho coal ring why may It not
be applied to tho railroad extortionists
with equally happy results
THE NEW CHARLESTON
Peoplo who havo been to Charleston
rtcently say the spirit of cheerful conll
dence thero Is wonderful and that ft bet
ter built city than tho wrecked ono will
grow out of tho ruins Tne very poor
people whoso homes were destroyed aro
chiefly negroes They are all or at
least tho men remuneratively em
ployed for brawn and masclo command
high pay In Charleston now Their
homes were not expensive structurosand
tho moro industrious will soon raako
money enough to rebuild The largest
and most costly houses dtttroyed wero
the property of very rich peoplo Theso
have ready money aud will not need to
borrow to replace tho house Tho heav
iest loss falls ot tho middle class not
rich nor very poor nnd nearly all whites
They cannot onduro the stvero manual
toll of day laborers aud thus earn
monoy and many of them are women
These people will have to go in debt to
get now homes It Is not likely that
there will beany general loan system
Tho money Is thoro at homo in tho
Charleston banks and will bo put out
freely It Is very gratifyingto hear theso
reports Of course thero nro numerous
caBes where tbo expense Incurred In
constructing new homes will provo a bur
den of many years bat theso cases aro
not tho most numcroni If tho peoplo of
Charleston succeed In rehabilitating their
shattered city out of tholr own resources
they will bo all tho pronder and prosper
ous therefor Tho whole country will
watch tho upward growth of the wrecked
city with eager and kindly Interest and
It may como to pass that tho new Charles
ton will bo a far moro selfreliant push
ing community Improved by disaster
than tho welltodo Complacent city not
Increasing nor yet retrograding in slzo
and population which tho earthquake
found ready to hand and gavo such a
shaking up
THE DENGUE
Tho dengue is having a walkover this
year something like It did a year ago
Wo hear ot it here thero and almost
everywhere In tho South for it is a South
em product and nc er roams It strikes
a town and forthwith that town capitu
lates ovory thing gives away to tho den
gue just llko everything does when tho
circus is In town When tho band strikes
up and tho procession Is fairly under
way af least halt tho population aro per
sonally and painfully concerned Peoplo
laugh sometimes at courts and schools
adjourning for the circus but wo have
known thorn to do tho samo for tho den
guo Not ton days ago special telegrams
to Thk Gazkttk from two ilourlsnlng
county towns In Texas announced that
tho district court in each had adjourned
Indefinitely Judges sheriffs lawyers
and jurors wore down with tho dengue
Theso towns aro over 200 miles apart
but that mado no difference with the den
gue i it doesnt discriminate in favor ot
towns as it Is charged tho railroads
sometimes do That discrimination
cry by tho way is often rung
out against Fort Worth Less pushing
and goahead towns complain that tho
Fort gets tho best freight rates In tte
stato and thereby Is cnablod to under
sell us when the truth l that tho Fort
doesnt got anything of the kind Thero
aro two redeeming features about tho
dengue Ono is that It doscnt
provo fatal nlthough it leaves a
inan as weak and abaky as
Brer Crunfllls prohibition mocmcnt
Stalwart Still Russell one of the finest
types of physical manhood In Texas was
in The Gazkttk sanctum tho other night
and complained of weakness Ho ex
plained apologetically that ho had just
had a tussle with the dengue Tho other
redeeming feature is that the malady un
like some people who get Into office
knows when It has bad its ill and doesnt
stay always It will pack lis grip ere
long and leave with tho early frosts go
to Florida pethaps like the rich peoplo
In the North do when winter comes It
cannot tolerate cold weather and cold
weather will soon be hero Nobody will
mourn the txlt of the dengue and wo
may add a third redeeming feature tho
dengue spares Fort Worth
